Here are the top five Facebook mistakes you need to to avoid if you want to spare the arguments and stay together...
1. Don't hide things from your partner on social media
So your ex has sent you a direct message with a completely innocent 'hi, congrats on the new job' comment, but instead of telling your current beau you keep it a secret. A few weeks later he finds the thread and gets the wrong idea. Save yourself the hassle and come clean about the things your partner might not be 100% happy with.
2. Delete photos of your ex-boyfriends on Facebook
Photos of you and your ex-boyfriend cuddling up on a romantic holiday could make your new partner feel uncomfortable. If he wants you to delete them off your Facebook timeline, go along with it or explain why the photos are important to you. Make sure you're on a level playing field, so if he wants you to delete your images, he should be willing to do the same.
3. Don't change your Facebook relationship status
Don't change your status to 'in a relationship' until you've spoken to him about it first. Changing your status is like sending out a declaration and it's not something that should be done lightly. Oh, and whatever you do, don't change your status after the first date!
4. Don't turn an argument into public knowledge
Even if he's been a total idiot, don't start bad mouthing him to your entire network. Not only is this embarrassing for the two of you, but is shows a complete lack of respect, trust and privacy. To be on the safe side, the only things worth mentioning on Facebook are key romantic milestones (getting together, getting engaged, getting married or splitting up).
5. Don't get too romantic or OTT on Facebook
If you and your partner decide to be a little bit more vocal on Facebook don't start over-sharing. It might be cute when you call him 'snuggle monkey' in the bedroom but announcing it online (which is commonly perused by prospective employers) doesn't make you seem very mature.
